Michio FUKUOKA “From the Scene of Black Color”

Michio FUKUOKA “From the Scene of Black Color”

Sat. Nov 17, 2018 - Sat. Dec 22, 2018

Gallery Yamaki Fine Art is delighted to hold a retrospective exhibition of Michio FUKUOKA (1936-), one of the representative postwar artists in Japan. We will present his trajectory during 50 years with works some of which will be shown for the first time.

Fukuoka was highly recognized as a leading figure of “anti-art” in the 60s, included in the historic group exhibition “Room in Alibi” (1966 Naiqua Gallery, Tokyo) curated by Yusuke Nakahara (1931-2011), one of the most influential Japanese art critics. Recent years see the trend of reevaluation of his works, such as at Yokohama Triennale in 2014 and at his retrospective exhibition at The National Museum of Art, Osaka in 2017.
